A tool that allows for versioning sites built with mkdocs

Project description


mkdocs-versioning is a plugin for mkdocs, a tool designed to create static websites usually for generating project documentation.

mkdocs-versioning extends mkdocs by differentiating between different versions of documentation you may build. For example, a newer versions of some software may work differently from an older version and it is important that users of an older version of the software reads the appropriate version of the documentation in order to ensure that the user has the correct information and uses the software appropriately.


Install the plugin using pip:

pip install mkdocs-versioning

Next, add the following lines to your mkdocs.yml:

  - search
  - mkdocs-versioning:
      version: 0.3.0

If you have no plugins entry in your config file yet, you'll likely also want to add the search plugin. MkDocs enables it by default if there is no plugins entry set.


Instructions on how to use the plugin is available at
